I’ll do anything to protect my daughter…
When I pick my beloved daughter Poppy up from school one afternoon, my mind races when I see the little girl holding Poppy’s hand. With the same heart-shaped face, long brown hair and dark eyes, the two girls look identical. In fact, they look like sisters.
Is the secret I’ve been holding on to for so long about to be revealed?
That night, I cuddle Poppy even harder, desperately trying to decide what to do. And then my husband’s phone vibrates. A message. And then another. And another. All from a number I don’t recognise.
Is someone going to tell my husband what I did? Could I be about to lose everything I have worked so hard to protect?
But I’ve spent so long hiding the truth, I never stopped to wonder if I was the only liar in the family… The only thing I’m sure of is that nobody is going to take my child away from me.
If you can’t get enough of addictive psychological thrillers like Gone Girl, The Wife Between Us and The Marriage, you’ll love The Liar’s Child. With nail-biting suspense and an ending that will make your heart pound, this is one book you simply won’t be able to put down.

Of all the books I have read of Sheryl Browne, this book I must say is one of her best.
Plot :-Kay is a creative writing professor at a university and her husband, Matthew is a doctor. When Kay goes to school to pick her daughter Poppy up, she introduces Kay to her new friend named Olivia. But here’s the thing–Olivia and Poppy they both look alike that Kay was sure that both of them are sharing the same father and Kay is determined to find the secret…
Let’s start with the good ones in the book
*The author has done tremendous research on the neonatal diseases and other medical terms to make this story more realistic as possible.
- The story started off well and by the middle of the book, things started to get heated up and came gripping wth unexpected twists and turns you wouldn’t really have expected.
- Many of these characters are unreliable and complex characters particular Kay and her husband Matthew, both of them seem to be hiding something dark secrets. Both characters suspect of each other and Kay believes Olivia is a love child of Matthew and Matthew believes Kay is hiding something. Meanwhile, another woman weasels her way into Kay and Matt’s life–Amelia. Kay knows this woman as Amelia, a student in her class and Matt knows her as Rachel the part time nurse. Though Amelia’s perspective was not much given, it’s very clear that she has a set agenda against Kay or Matt with a plot to take revenge, and as a reader, you are wondering what that is all about!
- The author has done a good job drawing the reader to the story! I was literally hooked from the beginning to the end, wanting to know what is going to happen next!
- And what a rollercoaster ride I had with this book!
Bad things…well literally I couldn’t find any actually–I must say, this book is one of Sheryl’s best work so far!
Overall, this was such a gripping thriller that will keep you at the edge of your seat!
